Join Presbyterian Disaster Assistance in responding to Hurricane Michael and other storms: GIVE NOW

Jamaica

 

The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) relates to our partner church, the United Church of Jamaica and the Cayman Islands. PC(USA) has at times had mission volunteers working with the United Church in their extensive primary and secondary school system. There are a number of sister congregations between the United Church and PC(USA). We have also worked closely with and through Caribbean and North American Council for Mission.

The PC(USA) has supported the United Theological College of the West Indies, particularly in their goal of strengthening a clinical pastoral education component within this seminary. United Theological College is one of the major Protestant seminaries in the Caribbean, particularly for English-speaking churches, though a large contingent of Haitian students also are enrolled.

Current Council for Mission priorities, that all member churches are working towards together, are to eliminate violence against women, eliminate human trafficking, alleviate poverty and address root causes and promote church growth and renewal.
